GCSE AQA English Language Paper 1 and 2 Revision and Study Chat Watch
Don’t worry I did at first, I just managed to remember how to unpick the question and the key points to include, for me it helped to write them down as soon as I got the paper. In the exam I also timed, just using mr bruff I managed to go up 4 grades, so you can too.
i kind of need advice about A levels. currently i have a 9 in english language and an 8 in literature. i’m taking it for A level but i‘ve read that people who got 9s at GCSE are getting Ds in their A level because english is so hard. i think i’m alright at it but i don’t know what to do because everyone says it’s so difficult. i don’t have any other options for A level.
Q5) “Cars are noisy, dirty, smelly and downright dangerous. They should be banned from all towns and city centers, allowing people to walk and cycle in peace.”
Write a letter to the Minister for transport arguing your point of view on this statement
To whom it may concern,
I am of the strongly advised opinion that the use of cars has allowed the multiple working sectors of today's society to explode into something which has brought forth massive economic, social and environmental value. Is banning cars really an option?
Since the concept and development of the car, in 1956, the number of jobs available in the transport industry has multiplied two-fold. One cannot start to imagine the multitude of problems the banning of cars will give birth to. Perhaps as a country, we are inching closer to a greener and more sustainable area, but can you possibly think our society can thrive without our number one transport method?
It is usually the topic debated most at meetings concerning climate change; the disastrous problems that these rusty engines cause when the ignition key brings them to life. On average, they produce 14 metric tonnes of waste and 300 parts per million (ppm) of the deathly gas, otherwise known as carbon dioxide. One might argue that fault lies in the designs of the flawed model but as a previous engineer for BMW, I can assure you that this is not the case. Humans, we are the real problem. Instead of banning cars, I suggest promoting a healthier mode of transport - walking. Not only is it beneficial to the beloved planet which we inhabit, but it also brings forth a healthier method of living for the participant. A study by Nottingham Universities department of biology proved it to:
Increase cognitive capabilities by up to 15%
Decrease stress levels by up to 32%
Decrease the chance of heart-related diseases by up to 27%
Increase the levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine released in our brain by up to 53%
I urge you to consider all the health benefits this simple action provides.
Without a car, only 6% of our country would be able to travel to work. Can you begin to fathom what your actions could cause? The economy of our country would collapse, there will be mass rioting and the thriving of our technology will diminish to nothing.
Finally, to conclude, the banning of cars is not an option. It provides millions of jobs and is a way of life for some unfortunate others. It would be as if a grown man was stealing candy from a baby. I am certain that you would not want this to be the case. Instead, I advise you to consider alternatives to aid the reduction of the impacts on the climate. Simply put, banning cars is not an option! I assure you that together, we can fix this problem
Your reputable advisor,
I did my mocks in November and I did only Language mocks. My results were as follows.
I got in P1: Q1 = 4/4, Q2 = 8/8, Q3 = 7/8, Q4 = 18/20, Q5 = 37/40.
I got in P2: Q1 = 3/4, Q2 = 3/8, Q3 = 12/12, Q4 = 16/16, Q5 = 36/40
I know in Q2 for Paper 2 I didn't get as high in terms of marks but this was due to a lack of time to complete it, and I did manage to get 8/8 in the same form of a question in Paper 1. I do not mean to boast, just looking to help people who need it as I understand how it feels to struggle with something. Also in Q1 for Paper 2 I made a silly mistake which I have now learned from. If you have any questions just ask me (:
